Animals and clay? Potter wasp? Our book #ClayinCommon has lots of little known facts about this amazing material. Found in the northern hemisphere, the female potter wasp carries small balls of clay in her mouth to create a nest - this one a gift from Greece from @robkesseler Rob Kesseler who knows how fascinated we are by them! #clay #potterwasp #natureisart #nest @duncanhooson

“I was out on a stroll in the garden when I noticed this Potter Wasp circling around some plants and building its nest. I rushed to get my camera but eventually had to wait for five and a half hours to finally get the right shot!” This photograph by Karthikeyan Shanmugasundaram (@karthikeyan.photographer) was one of the entries in the #NiFPhotographyAwards 2016.

If you've seen my Instagram Story today, you'll recognize this #PotterWasp, #EuodynerusMegaera. In the video, the female is excavating a nest by boring into the wooden frame of my compost bin. Inside she laid an egg and crammed one or more moth caterpillars inside for her larva to eat once it hatches. Then she stopped up the nest with mud, which you can see here. The adult wasps are #pollinators and an important part of a healthy garden. #Hymenoptera #Vespidae #wasp #WaspNest
